Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. Select a Living or Animate target within 45 feet as well as a specific emotion. You must actively and obviously use a microphone or musical instrument to activate this Effect. Roll Charisma + Performance at Difficulty 6. Affected targets can resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 8.
If you succeed, for the next minute, your target will do things they otherwise wouldn’t have done, inspired by the chosen emotion. They will not necessarily display their emotions in an obvious way.
Actions they take will be in keeping with their character and the way they tend to deal with strong emotions. They will be unlikely to change their mind about any actions taken or decisions made until after the Effect ends.
Both attacking someone and being attacked will end the Effect.
Ame starts to weave, precisely yet quickly, strong layers of spider’s webbing, white threads that have a surprising amount of versatility. Be it clothing, traps, nets or ropes.
Exert your Mind and spend 1 minute to activate.
Choose a specific type of webbing which could fit inside a messenger bag (up to 10 liters). It cannot be Alien and must be relatively basic. You cannot create explosives. You cannot create firearms.
Roll Brawn + Crafts to fabricate up to 5 copies of your chosen Object. The Difficulty is assigned by the GM and depends on the specificity of your chosen Object. Created item lasts 1 hour.
Ame pulls out her guitar, beginning a powerful chorus, and focuses the unbridled sea of musical talent inside her into waves of thunderous force that blast people and objects alike away from her.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. You must actively and obviously use a musical instrument or microphone to activate this Effect. Roll Charisma + Performance at Difficulty 6.
Create a repulsion field which extends out 15 feet from you in every direction, and lasts for the next 3 Rounds. Any Animate targets within the field cannot move any closer towards you. If they were within 15 feet from you when you activated the effect, they are immediately pushed back to the edge of the repulsion field.
You must maintain Concentration during this Effect.
Ame’s blood awakens a new gift, the ability to climb sheer surfaces in a way spiders do, climbing, crawling, even running up the walls when she needs an extra boost of speed.
In a similar way, or perhaps just through her familiarity with the flow that is the city, the can now run through them without resistance, and bike through them without danger to herself and others.
You gain the following benefits at all times.
You may move easily and without a roll in any of the following situations.
The nightmares. The horrible feeling of spiders in her blood. What was written on that sheet of paper she was given. All signs that Ame can’t quite piece together yet, but her body is slowly piecing together for her. Several barely noticeable lumps across her body, namely in the palms of her hands, the soles of her feet, and the back of her throat, have gained the ability to sprout 50ft lengths of webbing, that can be used for self defense, or even longer amounts when not in combat.
This webbing can be used as a garrote as well as a dagger.
You gain the following benefits at all times.
You are permanently and visibly transformed: a partial spider yokai. You are considered to be a Sapient, Living being when targeted..
Your body provides you with the functionality of grappling hook. If used to attack, these "tools" use the same stats as a small knife.
Track your current equipment here. You may start with anything your Contractor would reasonably have access to.
Trophies are special objects and equipment.
Examples of Trophies include healing potions, scrolls, sci-fi technology, or any supernatural item that was not created with The Contract's Gift system.
Because Trophies may have GM-created systems, they also record the Playgroup they were acquired in.
Ame Aoki, born Raine Aoki, is a Japanese American woman who lived in San Francisco, California before moving to Tokyo, Japan after the death of her mother, Akari Aoki. Having not known her father at all and her mother not having any family in the states, she never had any sort of familial culture. This drew her to Japan, trying to rediscover her heritage and hopefully even family there.
Before leaving America, she was lead guitarist of a local punk cover band “The Architects”.
She currently lives in Shinjuju, working for a tourist company due to her fluency in English and in multiple kinds of sign language.
After her fifth game, she joined a band she named “Mizugumo”, after the Japanese water spider. The band is picking up popularity in punk rock circles.
